The maximum sale price of liquefied petroleum gases (LPG) in containers of 8 to 20 kilos (the traditional butane cylinder) is reviewed bimonthly on the third Tuesday of each month, by resolution of the General Directorate for Energy Policy and Mines.

This revision is calculated based on the cost of raw materials (propane and butane) in international markets and also takes into account the cost of freight (transportation) and the evolution of the euro-dollar exchange rate.

Consequently, the revision, either upwards or downwards, is limited to 5 percent and the excess or defect in price accumulates, being applied on subsequent occasions, according to information laopiniondemalaga.es.

Royal Decree-Law 20/2022 limited the maximum price before taxes of bottled LPG between 8 and 20 kilos until June 30, 2023. The price set by the Resolution of May 12, 2022, of the General Directorate of Energy Policy and Mines, €19.55 per bottle.

Bottled LPG is a mixture of hydrocarbons, mainly butane, which serves as an alternative to natural gas for energy consumption in pressure vessels, especially in towns or urban centers without connection to the natural gas network.

Currently, 64.5 million LPG containers of different capacities are used each year, a consumption that was reduced by more than 25% between 2020 and 2021, the ministry explained.

The Government has approved an improvement in the protection of vulnerable consumers that increases the minimum benefit of the thermal social bonus from €25 to €40. This is around the cost of approximately two butane cylinders, reaching a maximum of €375 in 2023, depending on the climate zone.
